We sincerely appreciate the support of our friends who sent in hearty congratulations and thank those who were present at the 80th birthday party for our dear mother Sushila Merchant. It was a unique way to respect our seniors, to involve three generations in furthering our values, to promote multiculturalism and racial harmony, and to showcase talents of various ethnic groups. Some photographs taken on this occasion are presented below. Over 125 photographs are stored in a private file for more personal viewing.
